Colourful Punk (by Lesley)

One of the sets featured on the last TV show was Steampunk Butterfly, a set that can be used in so many different ways.  Today I want to share a DL tag with you which I made some time ago. It shows two of the images from this set which rarely get a look in, the rose stem and rose bud. And as you know I love colour so get out the sunglasses!

  • The background was created on a DL piece of stamping card using the acrylic block technique and Dylusions Spray inks
  • The music image from Music Fanfare was stamped around the edges with Versafine Onyx Black.
  • The two rose images were stamped on another background, which was made on a self adhesive label with spray inks using the acrylic block technique. Only the heads of the flowers were cut out.
  • Finally the roses were stamped on the main background and the rose heads stuck over the top.

Once again a self adhesive label allowed me to introduce more colour to the original background without the need to mask. I really do enjoy using these techniques and hope you will give them a try.

More super designs are still to come from the girls so please visit us again tomorrow.
